MOUNT KISCO, N.Y. – No emergency, it seems, is too big or too small for the ER staff at Northern Westchester Hospital in Mount Kisco.

When a vending machine in the emergency department waiting area began to emit a strong odor Tuesday, ER personnel called in the Mount Kisco Fire Department.

Firefighters determined that a motor in the vending machine had seized, causing the smell.

Hospital officials say there is a protocol to follow even for minor incidents like Tuesday's and that work in the ER never missed a beat.

"There was no interruption to operations or patient care and all the protocol was followed," said hospital spokesperson Gretchen Mullin.
